Part of the lloo«ll of the Cap­
tured New Sjileni Train ltob
lii»eovered on the Spot Where
He Was Taken—Unpublish­
ed Details.
The Man at Large One of
the Expert Crooks of the
Train itobbera Uooilln Founil.
All doubts as to the identity
of the captured New Saieui tniiu
robber now lyiutf iu the Fargo jail are
set at rest by the discovery made by
Postoffice Inspector Watkius last Sun­
day at the scene of the capture. It will
be remetnbered that a confession wus re­
ported to have tuade by the man to the
inspector. This was not true. What
led to Mr. Watfcins recent trip and sue
ceeful discoveries can only be laid to
good detective work. The prisioner has
been reticent anil has stolidly refused to
say any thing since his capture on the
10lh of June, by the inspector aud the
posse of Sheriff Hayes of Stark county,
The fact of the takiug of the man is yet
fresh in the minds of all, but the detuils
of his capture have not yet been pub­
lished, for reasons best known to the
officials. Briefly, the two robbers after
holding up the long train, terrorizing
the employees and securing their boodle
in registered mail letters, tied towards
the south from the scene of their daring
exploit. One of them carried a shot cun
from the train. They also attempted to
get away with a considerable amount of
specie. They made rapid progress direct
for the Black Hills. The robber who is
at large could not swim, while his par­
tner could. About thirty miles south of
the railroad track they were obliged to
cross one of the forks of the Cannon
Ball river, a small but deep stream flow­
ing into the Missouri. This was entered
and safely crossed by swimming their
horses. Further along a creek was met,
which mired the horse of the rider
was himself able to swim, and who had
attempted the stream first. The other
robber failing to find a ford, here sepa­
rated from his pal who had reached the
opposite bank. Each went in different
directions, the man who was caught pro
ceeding south and the other following up
the course of Cedar Creek, which the
horse could not ford and which the rider
could not swim, neither could the ani
mal be abandoned.
The sheriff's posse followed the track
of the man who went south. About 85
miles from New Salem, at 7 o'clock in
the morning, he was discovered resting
from his long hard ride on the bank of a
small stream under some low bushes.
The horse was grazing at the end of a
lariat rope, the saddle on the ground.
On discovery of pursuer-3 the fellow
quickly threw the saddle on the horse,
Hung away a bag of eighty silver dollars,
a package of flour and one of bacon, and
dashed Off at full speed. He was over­
taken and at the mouth of a Winchester
made some statement, upon the strength
of which the reward of $1,000 has been
claimed. On his person was found a
gold ring and gold watch taken from the
mail sacks and only about $100in money.
He was taken to the jail at Dickinson
and kept there for a few days, and for
greater security removed by the inspec­
tor to Fargo. That this was a wise pre­
caution may be judged from the escape
of the only two prisoners at the Dickin­
son jail on the Fourth of July.
The men had evidently divided their
awag before starting, so that in ease of
separation each would have his share.
Inspector Watkins probably knows by
tni'g time the amount they secured. The
published estimate of §5,000 or 86,000 as
the amount, is but the rudest guess. It
is believed that the robbers got away
with nearer §50,000. The registered
pouch was discovered on the trail to have
been burned, and noar by the shot gun
was found abandoned as too cumber­
some to carry.
Believing that part of the money at
least had been concealed by the captured
robber, or rathor thrown away during
his short flight after discovery, Inspec­
tor Watkins left this city last Friday
morning and, taking one assistant with
him, on Sunday morning last reached
the spot on the bank of the stream where
they got their man. Recent rains had
caused a heavy growth of grass and the
wind been sweeping over the place since
June 10th. But after a day's search
over a space of about four acres tbe
shrewdness of the inspector was re­
warded by finding in torn bits and
ragged pieces a large amount of cur­
rency. One wad contained a oig bill
—tfl'.liOO. Tner* were found numerous
tens and twenties more or less mutilated,
in prairie yrass knee high. The whole
bundle bad been dropped in one place
and in the robber's haste not securely
hid. Coyotes or gophers had torn and
separated the money and the winds had
scattered it. The amount recovered the
inspector will not disclose bnt it runs
into the thousands. The other robber is
at large yet, and is the leader. He is
known as a marvellously clever cracks­
man, with a romantic career. He is dar­
ing and self-possessed, and has figured
in criminal annals of the west, but never
convicted. Has killed his man. The
fellow in jail is also a certain murderer.
Inspector Watkins leaves for Helena to­
night aud will then take a lay off of 30
days in Washington.
rbe robbery was committed on the
evening of Juue 7th, at 10 p. m., near
New Salem. The time and place chosen
show the work was carefully planned and
the time card of the road studied to ad­
vantage before the attempt was made.
This was done in Mandan, which place
both of the cracksmen visited. One reg­
istered at a certain hotel shortly after
inspecting at the depot the make-np of a
train similar to the one they proposed to
raid. Tbe other was taken sick at a hotel
in that city bnt his illness was of short
duration. The men had come horseback
from tbe Black Hills, where they pur­
chased good horses, one at Spearfish and

the other at Sturgis They intended to
return to the same locality, and when it
is known that a man cau ride south along
the edge of the Bad Lands in the Dako­
ta's for many miles, even as far as
Texas, without meeting a human
habitation, or other evidence of civiliza­
tion if he cares to avoid them, it is seen
their route was well chosen. Mandan
is scarcely thirty miles from New Salem,
the only part of the road where that par­
ticular train would be iu the
night. West of that point as far
as Miles City, Montana, the train
passed ver the road in daylight, and
darkness is necessary for the successfully
holding up trains.

The last growl of the "Cynic" in the
Gleudive Independent is about the bird
butchers. The complaints of destruc­
tion by cut worms and other insects are
becoming more numerous in that vicin­
ity and the cause is beyond doubt due
to the indiscriminate shooting of harm­
less birds. Small snipe, larks and doves
areoft6n needlessly shot by hunters,
while boys who rob nests are none the
less to blame. The cynic continues:
Nature generally so adjusts herself
that when you exterminate any bird or
animal something of twofold danger
comes in its stead. If we exterminate
wolves we will be overrun with prairie
dogs aud jack rabbits kill the birds and
we are plagued by insects. If it were
even possible to kill all the flies, we
would die of pestilence, but laying this
all aside, for God's sake and the people's
sake spare the birds, one of nature's
greatest blessings—beautiful to the eye
heavenly to hear and indispensible to the
agriculturalist. There is a law to pro­
tect the wanton slaughter of birds, let it
be enforced. We are careful that the
game law is jt violated, but the law
that protects birds is of ten fold more
importance. Enforce tht law and teach
children at ho ue and school to appre­
ciate the beauty and value of birds.Even
in Sunday school it might be of more
cousequence to teach the children why
they should not stone birds, than to try
and understand how Joshua got influ­
ence enough to make the sun and moon
stand still while he finished his battle.
A writer in the Orange Judd Farmer
refers as follows to what are known as
good insectivorous birds, those that are
to be classed among the most helpful
kinds in the general warfare against in­
sects: Robins for cut and other earth
worms. Swallows, night-hawks and pur­
ple martins for moth catchers. Pewees
for striped cucumber bugs. Wood
thrushes and wrens for cut worms. Cat
birds for tent caterpillar. Meadow larks,
woodpeckers and crows for wireworms.
Blue-throated buntings for canker
worms. Black, red-winged birds, jays,
doves, pigeons and chippies—strawber­
ry pests. Quail for chinch bugs, locusts.
Whip-poor-wills for moths. Hawks, all
night birds, owls, etc., tanaeers, and
black-winged summer red birds—curcu
lios. There may also be mentioned the
following insect pest destroyers: Nut
crackers, fly catchers, chimney swifts,
indigo birds, chipping and song spar­
rows, black birds, mocking-birds, orchard
General Manager Mellon.
General Manager Mellon's trip over
the Jamestown A: Northern and the main
line of this division resulted very satis­
factorily. He complimented Superin­
tendent McCabe ou the ship-shape con­
dition of the road bed and excellent
work of the crews in laying new rails
and putting in new ties. The company
is preparing to do a big business this
fall in hauling out the wheat crop and
no road in the state is better able to
handle a rush of grain eastward than
the Northern Pacific. If the present
growing crop of North Dakota is gather­
ed in safety it will test to the utmost the
capacity of all tbe roads to meet the de­
mands made upon them for cars. The
Northern Pacific will take care of its
patrons better than any other corporation,
as it is better equipped for doing so, and
under the present management every ef­
fort is made to accommodate shippers in
the pursuit of its liberal policy- general­
ly towards the public.
General Manager Mellon is. a young
man to be entrusted with such a high
and responsible position, but he has
reached it through sheer force of ability
and industry. He is popular with the
employees. A recent raise in the pay of
engineers, trainmen aud switchmen
was obtained through Mr. Mel­
lon's prompt recognition of the
justice of the request. He believes in
requiring good service from men and
paying for such, and also in rendering
tbe same to the public. Under Mr.
Mellon's management the operating of
one of the most extensive railroad sys­
tems in the United States seems enter­
ing upon a career of unexampled success.
Richard Sykes' Arrival,
Richard Sykes of Eugland, arrived
from St. Paul Friday morning. He has
been making bis annual trip of inspection
at Larcbwood, Iowa, and is in North Da­
kota for the purpose of looking after his
large interests here.
Mr. Sykes is looking well, bis health
being excellent, while his old time con­
fidence in tbe fnture of this state is
stronger than ever. He will meet Mr.
Groat of the Northern Pacific, here to­
morrow and go with him to Edgeley
and Sykeston to inspect lands in those
localities. Mr. Sykes is highly pleased
with the outlook for the present year
and as he will remain in tbe state for
several weeks, the readers of The Alert
will no doubt hear of some new enter­
prise or suggestion of value originating
with one of North Dakota's best friends

Words of Wisdom.
R. C. Leavitt of Miuneapolis, one of
the pioneers of the northwest and general
manager of the Gull River Lumber com
panv says: "You can't say too much in
the papers about the benefits of sheep
raising on a farm. There can't be too
many sheep raised in this country.These
rolling prairies are the natural grazing
grounds for sheep and this pasturage
now going to waste for want of stock to
eat it, could fatten beef, mutton and
pork enough for the whole country if en­
tirely utilized. In Iowa years ago farm­
ers got as poor as Job's turkey trying to
raise wheat. They had to quit or move
on. Now that they have abandoned tbe
wheat crop as their principal reliance
and have gone into stock, they are get­
ting independent and have fine farms
well improved with good buildings upon
them. It was the same in Southern
Minnesota. Not until the farmers got
into raising stock, selling butter and
farm produce, did they get along. Chat
tie mortgages were always lying in banks
when the wheat crop was the chief in­
dustry. I remember a Spring Valley,
Minnesota, bank that was full of chattle
mortgages before farmers quit wheat
and went into stock. A few years after­
wards those same farmers had 8100,000
on deposit in the same bank, all due to
the safer business of stock raising.

ance in this vicinity.
|It's Different When ItKains.
Ordway Johnson, the Aberdeen
boomer, relates the story of a Brown
county farmer who sowed 150 acres of
ground to wheat this spring and who
waited alone in the early part of tbe
season to see the result. No rains came
and tbe grain did not show up. The
farmer thought he had been doing that
kind of %vaiting long enough and so con­
cluded to linger no longer. By some
mistake or accident he had a team and
not mortgaged and he according­
ly sold off what farm truck he could,
hitched up and started south for Iowa.
He had not gone fifty miles before a
black cloud loomed up on tbe horizon,
and soon a sopping big ram was falling
upon the astonished immigrant, who
promptly turned bis team around and
started back for the farm he had
abandoned. Before be got there the
rain bad soaked him through and tbe
wind had blown over and partly wreck­
ed his wagon, but he made tracks for
the farm and now is watching bis crop
grow into money that will let him out of
difficulties and probably keep him for a
permanent citizen.
Mr. Johnson says thai in May, before
the rains, be offered to sell his residence
in Aberdeen for 82,500 and could get no
buyer. Shortly after the June rainB
came he refused $5,000 for the same
property. All the people want to know
is the fact that it does rain occasionally
in this country and the land of tbe Da
kotas' is good enough for them.
Facts From Foster.
From the Independent it is gleaned
that Foster county's Fourth of July was
a wide-spread and enjoyable affair. At

growing in any place is nothing but
speculation, the best way you can put it,
and nine men out of ten who are too
lazy to do anything else in the farming
line will make a failure. In this country
men want to work three or four months
in the year and live the rest on the profits
of a wheat crcn. They can't do it, and
those who have not found it out to their
cost already, will before long. This is a
magnificent country, it will be thickly

In Wells county there were horse

tains the following stock items:
A. O. Elder informs us that he bad
2.914 pounds of wool from 385 sheep. He
shipped the wool to Chicago and ex­
pects to trot about 20 cents a pound for
it. Mr. Elder says it is just like finding
money to get it raising sheep and that
he has got back the original amount in­
vested and has 600 sheep for his work.
Some strange disease has attacked the
cattle that are being herded at the
Hawk's Nest, Hunter & Robertson and
O. G. Meacham having lost several head.
From what we can learn it seems that
the fore legs begin to swell up, the cat­
tle get stiff all over, and die in a short
time. Those who have cattle there
would do well to look after them and see
if they can locate the origin of this
strange malady.
Danger From hot Winds Over.
Aberdeen Republican: The latter days
of June and first in July is the crtical
period for the South Dakota wheat crop.
This is the time the hot winds come. If
the wheat is ruined by heat it is always
done between June 25th and July 4tb.
A period of intense heat almost invari­
ably follows the summer solstice—June
21st. If tbe earth is dry at this time, the
radiation of h«»at is followed by south­
west winds that take the life out of
vegetation. If there is plenty of mois­
ture, the free evaporation ot it prevents
any great atmospbric disturbance and
reduces the temperature. If the intense
heat of the present week were accom­
panied by drouth it would mean good
bye to our hopes of a good crop. As it
is, with the ground saturated in our
grain fields and the entire country south­
west of us clear to the Black Hills coveN
ed with great pools and ponds of water,
the grain instead of shriveling and turn­
ing yellow, is fairly jumping upward and
taking on every day a shade of green
more intense than before. Heat is life
to vegetation when it is accompanied by
plenty of moisture it is death only when
drouth comes also. This year it will
add to oar crop. "There's million* in it."
Railroad Rumors.
It is said that a company of "geologi­
cal students" who have been gathering
'specimens" west of Aberdeen, have
turned out to be surveyors, and have
been running railroad survey lines thick
and fast. The rumors of the extension
of the Milwaukee road from Eureka, its
present terminus to Bismarck, are re­
newed. This break into the Northern
Pacific land grant would mean the sub­
sequent extension of the Edgeley brandy
in this direction. It was stated last
week by a man well posted in South and
North Dakota railroad projects that the
Northern Pacific intended to build into
Aberdeen this season, extending the
Oakes line also that the steel had been
purchased for the completion of the Soo
grade. As the crop begins to mature
and the prospect of a big yield grows
into a reasonable certainty, moves on the
railroad checker board are becoming ap­
Still Finding Bones.
Henry Broughton of Spiritwood, has
gathered this spring seven tons of buf­
falo and other bones. About half of
them were bones of horses, mules and
cattle that have died within the last ten
years on the Spiritwood farms. Tbe
buffalo bones were found only fifteen
miles from this place, along tfee shores
of Fox lake and the chain of lakes that
runs south frora Spiritwood. Early in
the spring bones were easy to find, but
now the grass is too high to see them
and a picker would not make wages at
the work. Under favorable circum­
stances a lively hustler can gather about
800 or 1,000 pounds in a day's work with
ordinary luck. Every little slough hole
and coulie still contains more or less
bones. The price here is 810 a ton load­
ed on cars, and §18 a ton delivered in
Seed Wheat Commission Alive.
A meeting of the Miller seed grain
commission was called to meet in James­
town Friday, but owing to tbe absence
from home of several of tbe members
notice failed to reach them in time for
them to get to Jamestown. Mr. E. P.
Wells received telegrams this morning
to that effect from Gov. Miller affd Com­
missioner of Agriculture Helgeson. On
this account there will be no meeting
today. Tbe commission consists of Gov.
Miller, Commissioner Helgesoa, E. P.
Wells and S. S. LyoA of Fargo. It is
understood that the meeting will be
held later on, when more accurate infor­
mation as to bail losses and the condition
of the crops can be had in whiob to make
up the assessment for those who have
guaranteed tbe elevators protection from
possible loss.
(ikte Sowed Wheat.
As the time of harvest approaches it
is beginning to be seen that a consider­
able amount of late sowed wheat is not
going to meet tbe expectations of its
owners. The wheat is not asfaradvaneed
as it ought to be and while growing fast
now, it is feared it can not reach matur­
ity in time to escape the usual frost.
Much of this grain is not over four, five
or six inches high. It is getting late in
the season. Wheat ought to be heading
out pretty generally but it is not.
Mining Statistics.
The statistics of mines and mining for
this state, to be incorporated in the
eleventh census of the United States,will
be collected by R. M. Tuttle of Mandan,

He is very desirous that the state shall
be well represented in this department
of mining, and any parties who have
facts and information of interest, should
write him at Mandan.

Stir :::tin's Luck.
Any one loofch..:
the printed maps
of Stutsman county will observe that it
extends from range 62 on the east to
range 68 inclusive on the west. This is
an error. Range 69 has always been a
part of Stutsman county. This error in
the printing came near losing to this
county $3,231.23.
The Northern Pacific railroad company
commenced paying taxes under the gross
earnings law :n 1879,which taxes were paid
to the several counties through which it
passed, in proportion to the number of
miles in each county, and in accordance
with the number of miles as shown on
the printed maps. When County Treas­
urer S. K. McGmnis received the first
payment after he was elected from the
territorial treasurer, in 1887,he discovered
that Stutsman county was only getting
pay for 42, miles instead of 48 miles. Mr.
J.W.Raymond was then treasurer of
the territory and Mr. McGinnis called
his attention to the error. Mr. McGinnis
on investigation disooyered that this
county never had been paid on more
than 42 miles from tbe year 1879 to that
time, a period of eight years and request­
ed Mr. Raymond to refund
for the back year taxes. Mr
Raymond said it was
late," as
part of the i^oney had gone into the gen­
eral fund of the territory, and since the
organization of Kidder county it had
been receiving the tax on range 69.
When Hon. John D. Lawler succeeded
Mr. Raymond, Mr. McGinnis renewed
this demand for the back tax, but was
met with the same reply, "too late."
During the term of J. M. Bailey, succes­
sor to Mr. Lawler, the Northern Pacific
railroad paid about 8150,000 into tbe
treasury of the territory, being tax for
about two years. Of this amount sever
a thousand dollars would be distributed
to Kidder county. Mr. McGinnis again
set forth the claim of Stutsman county,
at the same time serving notice on Mr.
Bailey not to pay Kidder county any
money untii the claim was settled. He pro
posed to Mr. Bailey to give him his bond
with surety to indemnify him against
any suit Kidder connty might bring
against him for paying Stutsman
county the money. Mr. Bailey con­
sented to this and Mr. McGin­
nis gave as his bondsmen W. M. Lloyd,
Geo. H. Woodbury, J. J. Eddy
and J. A. Buchanan. Thereupon
in June 1889, Mr. Bailey gave to Mr. Mc­
Ginnis,as treasurer. $2808.10, the amount
erroneously paid Kidder county from
1881 to 1886. There yet remained 8423.13
due to Stutsman county which bad been
retained the territorial treasury for
years 1879 and 1880, before the organiza­
tion of Kidder county. This amount
was in cours of adjustment when the
territory was divided. The claim was
passed to the joint commission for the
adjustment of claims at Bismarck, May
24th, lost and rejected.
Mr. McGinnis then renewed the claim
through Mr. Hayden, the present public
examiner, at the meeting the commis­
sion at Sioux Falls on JuaelOth. To­
day a warrant was received for 8423.13,
making ia all $3,231.23, which Stutsman
county came near losing by an error of
the printer.
College Trustees Meet.
Tbe trustees of Jamestown college held
a meeting Thursday and reviewed the
financial condition of the institution.
Messrs. C. P. Smith, H. B.Allen and Wm.
M. Lloyd were the only .members of the
board present. Dr. Ganse of Chicago,
secretary of the Presbyterian board of
aid for colleges, was present and gave the
trustees much encouragement. He said
the board of aid appreciated the condi­
tion of affairs in Dakota and would ren­
der substantial assistance to Jamestown
college. In fact, he made a liberal prop­
osition to help lift the floating debt of
the institution. President Mendenhall
writes the board from Philadelphia that
he will be home sometime about tbe last
of this month. When he arrives another
meeting will be held and arrangements
made for tbe opening of the next year,
the corps of instructors engaged, etc.,
etc. It is understood that the board in­
tends to soon put a man in the field with
tbe object of working up a larger at­
tendance for next year. If such is done
it is believed that the school year will
open next September with an enroll­
ment of at least 75.
